I am a freelance photojournalist based in Maine, specializing in portraiture and documentary photography. 

I grew up in a small neighborhood of mostly retirees and, when I was a kid, my favorite thing was to visit my neighbors each day and learn about their lives. People have always fascinated me, and stories have always been central to my life and work.

After graduating from college with a degree in Spanish and having lived and worked extensively throughout Latin America, I moved to Portland, Maine to study photojournalism, radio, and videography at The Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. 

Following my studies at Salt, I worked for several years as the Director of Multimedia at The Telling Room, a nonprofit creative writing center for youth aged 6-18. There, I taught immigrant and refugee students how to share their life stories with community through writing, radio, and photography. My work as an educator has informed and inspired my own practice as an artist and documentarian.

I am available for hire for editorial work, portraiture, weddings, and photography partnerships with community organizations.
